Traveliss's Review:

Falling in Love with Phang Nga Bay: Kayaking and James Bond Island Tour

If you are looking for an adventure or snorkelling trip, forget about Phang Nga Bay. There's nothing to see under the surface of the emerald-green waters. However, if you want something you can say "Beautiful, I love it!" again and again about, then you go on this Phang Nga Bay trip.

Why? The beautiful splendour of Phang Nga Bay is full of surprises and there is much more to it than you might think. Traveling by comfortable escort boat allows you to enjoy the scenery at a sedate pace without feeling crowded. The boat is easily small enough to get right into the heart of the bay, so that you can find yourself surrounded by mountains and the sea. I love it!

Canoeing into the caves to see wonderful stalactites and stalagmites at Panak Island and Hong Island? Wow! A very peaceful and beautiful moment. I love it!

Visit James Bond Island, where the 1974 film "The Man With The Golden Gun" was filmed. I wonder how nature created a site so beautiful? I love it!

Lunch is served on board. Yummy and I love it!

Paddle your own kayak to go exploring, swim in the cool water or relax on the beach. Even though the water is not clear and there are no fish or coral reefs to see, I love this time too!

Phang Nga Bay feels romantic and mysterious, like a middle-aged woman. Well, I think of the Phi Phi Islands as being like a teenager - brash and vibrant and kind of chaotic, by comparison. I am a scenery maniac and cannot stop saying "I love it, I love it, I love it!"

Now it's your turn to try. I would recommend visiting this stunning area with your loved ones and friends. My kids enjoyed it too, and they only objected to having to wait a whole day before swimming time. Kids want to get wet as soon as possible!
